What makes this place special despite the plain desert scenery, is the sunrises/sunsets plus the people that winter here. We meet our nomad friends here annually and enjoy all the activities available like the gem & mineral clubs classes, the evenings at the fire, Friday nights with a theme and musicians at the lit cactus (it's on google + facebook), hiking at Kofa, the big tent RV Show and the Rubber Tramp Rendezvous, but there is so much more to do: off-roading, the RCA club, events at the QIA. And yes, there are problems that come with a town of 3000 growing to a few 100 thousands in the winter: grocery shopping requires a drive to Blythe, Parker or Yuma, but there are at least 4 places in town for laundry

tents and vans are welcome here; this is not the case for all the LTVAs. lots of open space for camping. pretty quiet in general.

Love being in Q. I am staying in this spot until I head to Yuma the 31st.

We stayed here from mid Oct 2021 to late March 2022. It’s a great place to learn about RVing as well as solar. There are so many knowledgeable people in and amongst the roughly 500,000 people camping here in January.

The grocery situation requires an ability to plan. And to cook. It’s a town of 2000 that swells to half a million: service and selection will not be what you are used to.

If you like rocks and desert flora you will love this place.

BLM LTVA. $180 for the season Sep 15 thru Apr 15. $40 for 2 weeks during the season. Includes dump station, trash, and fresh water. Mostly open flat natural gravel desert. Lots of dirt trails that are mostly navigable by all types of RVs. However there are trails that should only be used by OHVs, so scout them out before committing your vehicle if it's not built for off-road travel.

The La Posa LTVA sites are in the fee area, it is $40 for 2 weeks or $80 for longer, up to 7 months I think. La Posa South has fresh water, dump stations, and trash bins. The are huge areas, room for multiple hundreds of any size RV.

The free areas are farther away in all 4 directions.
